Letter of Invitation

Dear Sir/Madam,

Greetings and best regards from City Montessori School, Gomtinagar Extension, Lucknow, India.

City Montessori School, Gomtinagar Extension is enthused to announce the 4th Biennial International Environment Olympiad, 2019. We request your gracious presence and participation at the event. The IEO is a platform to instill and spread the firm resolve of preserving and protecting Nature for a prosperous and peaceful world. It is a celebration of the symbiotic bond between humans and Nature.

We are grateful to the participants of the previous IEO for giving us an opportunity to create a stimulating environment for expression and effective implementation of our aim to safeguard the environment. The 4th IEO would be a similar endeavor at inculcating the values, ethics and zeal of Nature protection and guardianship in young minds. As the selfless and ever patient Nature faces distress due to causes of our own making, it is high time that we come together as one to requite its benign embrace upon us all.

Let us invigorate each other in this conviction at the 4th IEO from 12th to 15th December, 2019.

We extend our invitation to all future friendly schools to send a team of 10 students (5 from junior section, classes VIII – X, 5 from senior section, classes XI-XII) to participate in the 4th IEO and renew our promise that we are not separate from Nature. As time goes on she will evolve but will we?

We extend a special invitation to the Principal of the participating school to grace the occasion as our Guest of Honour. We hope to receive your confirmation of participation by 10th October 2019 and the duly filled registration form by 15th October 2019.

Prof Geeta Kingdon


All good people and nations want to save the environment but the task seems so enormous, they wonder what to do and whether anything they may do individually will be effective. This confusion leads to a paralysis of will to act, especially since action requires sacrifice of consumption ...

Mr Roshan Gandhi Forouhi

Director of Strategy

Environmental degradation is a silent problem which develops gradually and almost invisibly, and yet it is one of the greatest crises faced by the world today, posing an existential threat to life as we know it. Careless actions towards the environment lead not only to long-term, world-wide shocks such as the melting ...

Head, Quality Assurance and Innovations Department

‘No generation has a freehold on this Earth. All we have is life tenancy- with a full repairing lease’. These words have been very aptly said by Margaret Thatcher and define our temporary relationship with the natural environment...

Mrs. Sushama Rajkumar

Secretary IEO

The earth's natural assets are made up of plants, animals, land, water, the atmosphere AND humans! TOGETHER we all form part of the planet's ecosystem– together is perhaps the most important word here. Everything we do as humans affects the world we live in – we do not have limitless resources...
